In case this wasn’t abundantly clear, USC has officially met football rock bottom. From the new administration retaining coach Clay Helton after the rumors and innuendo surrounding his job security, to now not being able to recruit its own backyard, disaster has struck in Southern California.

The 2020 early signing period began on Wednesday and the Trojans finished with the worst class in the Pac-12 according to 247Sports. Yes, behind Oregon State and Washington State.

As recently as Wednesday morning, when recruits started signing their letters of intent, there was hope that USC could land a few big recruits and have a respectable class. But Helton and Co. struck out on too many critical prospects, including the No. 1 player in California for the second year in a row. Last year it was defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux from Thousand Oaks who signed with Oregon. This year it was linebacker Justin Flowe, who grew up 40 miles away from USC’s campus in Upland, and also chose the Ducks.
